Are you wondering how to best guide your young child’s literacy learning, especially with this year’s unusual school schedules and extra time at home? Parents and caregivers often feel unsure how to effectively build early literacy skills or support new readers and writers in the context of a busy home. But, a bit of confidence-boosting background knowledge and a few tricks of the trade can go a long way! Bring your questions to this informal chat with a seasoned early literacy expert (and parent who understands the unique challenges of working with one’s own children.)
 
Feel free to email your questions in advance to Megan Smith! This event is best for families with kids in preschool–3rd grade, and will focus primarily on low-tech strategies!
